Pass It On

To celebrate the 225th anniversary of the founding of the town of Boonsboro, the Boonsboro Historical Society began an effort to gather stories and photos from long-time residents. We want to preserve the history of our small town to ensure it lives on for generations.  We are looking for written memories, documents and old photos.

Below are some of the memories of personal history in Boonsboro. They are from residents and former residents who recollect what they remember about living in our town – the people, places and experiences that make our town what is is today.

To search by keyword, please use the search bar on the right side of the page. Or, browse by categories listed to the right.

We plan to add more on an ongoing basis. Questions about PASS IT ON?  Have an old photo to share? Want to schedule a recording appointment? Please contact Kristin Bowl of Skipjack Web Services at
